Animated Tutorials

Hi everyone.
As you have noticed I am now writing animated tutorials.
I would like to thank the amazing Artist and designers for their gorgeous creations to play with.
My tutorials are written using PSP and Animation shop but there is a difference as I mostly use the .psd file for the animation and sometimes, but not often, I will use the mng file. My tutorials are very lengthy. You can always do just the tag and save it as a pspimage file and come back and try the animation part later. If you have any questions you can find me on Facebook here.

Have fun!!

Butterfly Dreams

This tutorial was written by me on July 21, 2020. The results are of my own imagination.  Any resemblance to another tutorial is purely coincidental.  

Please DO NOT claim this tutorial as your own.

This was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Please keep in mind that I write the tutorial as I am creating it.

Sometimes I may not explain properly where to place things so please see my example if you are ever in doubt :)

Supplies needed

I am using PSP 2018 but this tutorial should work with any version.

Animation shop (optional)

PTU Kit:  I am using an awesome kit called "Magic and Moondust" created by Pink Paradox Productions.  You can purchase this kit at Barbara Jensen's store here.

Anytime you resize an element or tube you should sharpen it.  Go to adjust, sharpness, sharpen.

Let's get started.

Remember to save your tag often in case psp crashes.  I always save my tags as a pspimage.  It keeps all the layers and if you make tags for others you will always have the template.

Open a new 750x800 transparent image.  We will resize later.

Add a new layer and flood fill with white.

Open paper of choice.  I am using paper 29, copy and close the original.  Paste as new raster layer then go to Layers, new mask layer, from Image and locate the mask in the drop down.  Apply the mask and merge group.  

Open element 190, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste.  Resize 60% and sharpen.

Open element 11, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste.  Resize 20%, sharpen and drop shadow.  Move over the tree.

Open element 55, copy and close the original.  Select the top layer and paste.  Resize 30%, sharpen and drop shadow.  Move to the top left of the stone fence.  See mine for placement.

Animating the tag.  Make sure your tag is saved as you do not want to loose it if psp crashes.

Might want to grab a coffee :)

Open animation shop and open Barbara Jensen's Butterfly Fae.mng in animation shop.  Resize the animation by 25%.

Back to psp.

We need to group the bottom layers of our tag.  Starting from the Lilac layer (Element 149), holding down the Ctrl key, click on each layer including the white layer.  Go to layers, new layer group.  

With group1 highlighted, click on the chain link icon.  

Still on Group 1, go to Edit, copy.

Back to animation shop.  You will notice there are 25 frames in the animation so we need 25 frames for our tag.  

Paste as new animation or Ctrl + v.

Now holding the Shift+Ctrl tap the L 24 times for a total of 25 frames.

Select Barbara Jensen's animated tube.  Select all (Ctrl+A) and copy (Ctrl+C)

Select the tag layer and select all.

We need to paste into selected frames.  Go to Edit, Paste into selection or Ctrl + E.

The tube will be hanging off your mouse pointer.  Move the tube into place and left click the mouse.

If you do not like the placement just hit Ctrl + Z to undo it and then Ctrl + E to replace the tube.

Once you are happy with placement you can close out Barbara's tube and do not save.

Back to psp.

Click on they eyeball beside the group layer to hide it.

Select all.

Edit, copy special, copy merged.

Back to animation shop.

The top part of your tag will be hanging off your mouse pointer.  Move the it into place and left click the mouse.
